Oh Mr. Pieman, how I love thee!


So many of you have asked me if the only thing I do is knit ... I take that to mean as my hobby? Because I do run the household here with an iron fist (I hear Debby laughing now) ... Of course, I quilt as you have seen by some of my pictures - although it is MY version of quilting ... you know that random kind where sometimes the seams just are random instead of together? I see some of you nodding your heads! This was a very fun one which are the only ones I do. Really different fabrics, retro fabrics, etc. This one had a barrage of different funky. quirky fabrics that I used for the piano key border. Actually funky, quirky is pretty much how some of my friends describe me .... of course with a smile ...
Above is a picture of my finished and self named, Mister Pieman. Lots of hula hooping and really crazy far out peace sign loving people... This was a gift to Stephanie. It was intended to be a wall hanging but she may use it for a lap quilt.

Yes, I do more than just knit. I love preserving memories aka scrapbooking. More on that another day.


Well, yesterday, ding dong went the doorbell and I knew it was the UPS man. Oh yeah, another shipment of J. Knits fabulous hand dyed sock yarns. Scrumptious, delicious and gorgeous. This shipment included replenishments of some of your favorites as well as Superwash Me - Light Sock Yarn. Each generous skein is approx. 550 yards and is 100% merino wool. Check it out. I have my eyeball on several but refuse right now until my Hundertwasser is done. (Notice that is NOT plural). So there you have it.

Tomorrow is baking day again. My daughter will be leaving on Friday (boo hoo). I have enjoyed her so much. The holidays are here ... the fire is roaring ... I am knitting ... just one more hat ...

That wall hanging is so fun! Where do you ever find such fabric? I would love to make one for my niece.

I loved the skeins of J. Knits collection I bought from The Yarn Grove before. I cannot resist this 100% merino or your free shipping. Last order I got it in 2 days!
